Ultra Music Festival (UMF) has proven its RESISTANCE brand to be a well-oiled industrial machine that unceasingly manufactures some of the finest house and techno lineups in the modern festival circuit. The revelations of its 2019 lineup continues this process. For its 2019 edition, Ultra Miami will present the RESISTANCE concept in an unprecedented manner, devoting a considerable portion of the Virginia Key festival grounds to what UMF organizers have newly dubbed “RESISTANCE island.”

Given the artists who grace Ultra Miami’s 2019 RESISTANCE lineup, “island” is indeed an apt descriptor. UMF crafts an underground paradise of electronic sorts via live sets from Maceo Plex, Black Coffee, Sasha | John Digweed, Richie Hawtin, and Charlotte de Witte. Adam Beyer and Cirez D will link up for another installment in their mythical back-to-back format series. Eric Prydz, however, won’t be the only producer appearing under an alias–deadmau5 notably figures among the RESISTANCE lineup as Testpilot. deadmau5′ Testpilot set flanks his headlining set as deadmau5. The mau5trap label head’s headlining set that will be the platform of deadmau5’s worldwide debut of his Cube 3.0.

In the midst of RESISTANCE’s luster gleams a back-to-back Carl Cox set. Ultra maintains the mystery for now, as festival organizers currently conceal of the name of Cox’s back-to-back partner behind the decks, which Ultra will expectedly declare at a later date. Ultra Music Festival will record its inaugural edition at its new home of Virginia Key from March 29-31.

deadmau5‘s innovative genius knows no bounds, as the mau5trap label head’s current technological challenge, the Cube 3.0, illustrates. As deadmau5 prepares to present his new cube-ular setup during his headlining slot at Ultra Music Festival 2019, he’s shared some sneak peeks of the new and improved Cube through his Twitch channel, the live streaming platform that, in the past, has been deadmau5’s medium of choice for teasing unreleased music, like his Rob Swire collaboration, “Monophobia.”

deadmau5 recently returned to his virtual Twitch stomping ground to share a Cube 3.0 progress update with his fans. The mau5ville compilation curator has streamed more than 24 hours of his work on the Cube thus far, which show the producer tinkering with a variety of different software programs like Cinema 4D and Houdini FX, to usher the Cube 3.0 from idea to reality. His latest latest Cube 3.0 video report is the most comprehensive to date, in its depiction of the cube’s intended shape, the surrounding stage design, and the cube’s LED styling. deadmau5 enthusiasts can follow live developments of the Cube 3.0 by subscribing to his Twitch channel, here. Channel subscribers will receive a notification when deadmau5 next goes live, so followers can be sure not to miss a minute of the creative action.

Ultra bids beloved Arcadia Spider stage farewell for 2019 installment

Ultra bids beloved Arcadia Spider stage farewell for 2019 installmentUltra Music Key Biscayne Resident Backlash

2019 will be a year of revision for Ultra Music Festival (UMF). The flagship festival of the international UMF brand, Ultra Miami will not only be facing changes of a locational kind. Ultra announced in November that it would host its 21st iteration at Virginia Key Beach Park, following the City of Miami Commission’s rejection of Ultra’s request for a contract renewal at its longtime home of Bayfront Park. As Ultra organizers prepare for a change of scenery, they’ve also quietly announced a series of major adjustments to the event’s organization. Ultra’s underground oriented RESISTANCE stage will occupy its own “island” within Virginia Key, while the festival’s UMF Radio, Ultra Worldwide, Live Arena, and Mainstages will remain clustered in another part of Virginia Key Beach Park, the Miami Marine Stadium.

In previous years, Ultra has spread its house and techno acts across its Megastructure and Arcadia Spider stages, but appears to have abandoned the Arcadia Spider stage this year. The Spider is notably not listed among the many stages that Ultra will run in 2019 in any of the promotional material that event organizers have disseminated to date. Ultra’s ASOT stage will return to carry on its legacy at Virginia Key, and will be flanked by Martin Garrix‘s STMPD Records stage, Richie Hawtin‘s PLAYdifferently, and ODESZA‘s Foreign Family Collective stages, which round out Ultra’s collection of branded areas. It currently remains unclear whether Ultra will replace the Spider with a novel new stage, to restore the sixth stage that the festival loses in the Spider. Although the fate of Ultra’s sixth stage is suspended in uncertainty, the caliber of the first phase of the festival’s lineup is assuredly one of Ultra’s finest.

Miami City Council votes in favor of Ultra Music Festival move to Virginia Key

Miami City Council votes in favor of Ultra Music Festival move to Virginia KeyUltra 2018 Mainstage ALIVE Coverage

In late September, news surfaced that Ultra Music Festival had been booted from its longtime home at Bayfront Park. It didn’t take long for the event organizers to propose a new host venue about ten minutes away on Virginia Key, and on November 15, the Miami City Council brought the proposal to an official vote. Even amid contentious opposition from Rapture Music Festival and residents of Key Biscayne, the vote passed — officially moving Ultra to a new home for the first time since 2001.

After more than three hours of heated deliberation, Miami Marine Stadium and Historic Virginia Key Beach Park in Virginia Key became the new host venue for Ultra Music Festival. The vote ended 4-1 in favor of the move, though the decision ultimately came down to two council members on the edge of a “yes” vote. The two year deal does include some contingencies — there’s the possibility of revocation within 60 days after the 2019 festival if certain circumstances occur. What’s more, Ultra has to pay $2 million to the city of Miami in order to sell up to 60,000 tickets to the festival.

But perhaps the grass will be greener in Virginia Key as Ultra opens a new chapter in the festival’s illustrious history. We’ll see come March, 2019.
